Join world-class athletes, change makers, and visionary artists for a multi-dimensional celebration of the indomitable spirit of the outdoors
Mountainfilm on Tour is coming to Estes Park, Colorado September 20-22, 2019 for its inaugural year. Hosted by Dao House Base Camp, the event will feature a selection of culturally rich, adventure-packed and inspiring documentary films, along with a full array of workshops, music, foodfest, and adventure events for the public. The weekend lineup will include Tibetan Yoga for high altitude sports training, camping, mountain biking, hiking and more, with the main film event occurring on Saturday, September 21st.
“We are thrilled to welcome Mountainfilm on Tour to Estes Park for an adventure packed weekend to share the spirit of the outdoors with enthusiasts against the stunning backdrop of the Rocky Mountains. It has been our vision to bring this unique festival to the area and we look forward to serving as the base camp for the event this year and in the years to come” said Maria Camille of Dao House.
The films, curated from the Mountainfilm festival held every Memorial Day weekend in Telluride, Colorado, showcase nonfiction stories about environmental, cultural, climbing, political and social justice issues that matter. Founded in 1979, Mountainfilm is one of America’s longest-running film festivals. Along with exceptional documentaries, the festival goes beyond the film medium by bringing together world-class athletes, change makers and visionary artists for a multi-dimensional celebration of indomitable spirit. Mountainfilm, which includes interactive talks, community events, outdoor programming and presentations, aims to inspire audiences and motivate individuals and communities to advance solutions for a livable world.
The three-day festival in Estes Park will include a lineup of events and outdoor wilderness experiences to compliment the films’ themes, including Mountain Bike Fundamentals, Avalanche Beacon and Rescue Training, Fly Fishing Casting, and Rock Climbing Fundamentals hosted by Colorado Wilderness Rides and Guides.
“We appreciate the power of film to capture the essence and spirit of outdoor adventure and share it with others from the safety of a movie screen. We look forward to inviting participants to take a step further and experience the transformative power of the outdoors and acquire new skills through one of our on-site activities.” said Joshua Baruch, founder of Colorado Wilderness Rides and Guides.
